Which Monitors to go with my gear?


I'm having a bit of a problem choosing some monitors.

I used to have a semi-commercial studio about 20 years ago with a 24 track 2" tape machine and large soundtracs console etc.

After not recording for a couple of decades my interest has been growing again and I have aquired some gear over the last few years to enable me to record again. It was a bit of a culture shock with tape machines being non existant etc. but I have now got a few bits of respectable gear.

My setup consists of:-

A PC running Cubase4
Lynx Aurora16
2 x AES16
Germanium pre
2 x Lxicon PCM91
2 x Lexicon MPX1
2 x Distressor
1 x Tubetech LCA-2B
1 x DBX SL
1 x Purplw MC77
and various other boxes

The problem is that I have a pair of HHB Circle 5s for monitoring and don't think they're up to it. I'm wondering what would do justice to the above list of stuff. Also to take into account is that I am working in a bedroom 14ft x 10ft so it doesn't give me too much room to work with.

Any ideas/feedback would be very much appreciated. :-)
